Angry /mnt/nt unmount while RH restart


I am a newbie for RH 9.

I have 3 partitions for /dev/hda. I mounted the 3 partitions into /mnt/nt /mnt/windows_c and /mnt/windows_d by using following commands:

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows_c -t vfat
mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/nt -t ntfs

I can 'explore' /mnt/nt, /mnt/windows_c and /mnt/windows_d after running the commands above. BUT after I restarted my POWERFUL RH 9 i have to redo the above commands again to 'explore' my /dev/hda

any IDEAs to access the above partions permently (i mean they won't 'disappear' after restart)????

PLS HELP ME..........

p/s: my existing RH 9 is installed in /dev/hdb

you have to add the lines to you /etc/fstab...not the lines you have wrote at terminal but something along the lines of:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows_c vfat defaults 0 0

where i have wrote defaults, you can look into what different values you can type in there:
for example i don't use the word defaults for one of my fat drives
i use:
user, rw, exec, uid=500
so you can see what you actually want to put there.
and just for you know...
defaults is the equivalent to rw, suid, dev, exec, auto, nouser, and async.

Is "http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html" useful to you?

Arzene : What do the following commands say :

"lsmod |grep -i ntfs"


... If nothing gets displayed, can you do this :

"modprobe ntfs"

And what happens if you do this again :

"lsmod |grep -i ntfs"
